About ten years ago, there was a very short-lived show on Comedy Central called Exit 57. It was a sketch comedy show that featured such up-and-coming stars as Paul Dinello, Stephen Colbert, and Amy Sedaris.
I watched it throughout my senior year of college. That show, The Daily Show, Viva Variety, and South Park were my television staples then.
Then I moved back home.
My parents didn't get Comedy Central on their cable until a year and a half later.
By that time Exit 57 was off the air.
This clip features a very, very young Stephen Colbert. It's very typical of the type of offbeat, wacky humor that Exit 57 was known for.
I'm going to share some clips from that marvelous show with you over the coming weeks. I hope, hope, hope they put this on DVD soon!
